Taking action | Achieving our Goals

The topic for the meeting is Take Action! Join us to learn about activities that can help you act confidently to pursue your 2020 strategic business goals.


“Action is the foundational key to all success.”
– Pablo Picasso


Let’s take a cue from one of the most successful self-employed artists of all time to explore how we can benefit from taking action to enhance our solo careers.
  • What are you doing to take action and achieve your 2020 goals?
  • What keeps you motivated to act when the going gets tough?
  • What models, methods or tools do you use to build momentum that you can share with your peers?
  • How do you maintain your focus to achieve your vision and goals?
  • Do you know the power of the streak? Do you know where to start to build one?
  • How do you keep track of your progress? How does tracking your activity benefit you?
  • How do you celebrate achieving your goals?


Join in the discussion to share your activities and insights with your fellow solopreneurs. We’ll see you there!

Leah Meilander
Chair of Solopreneurs
I am Freelance Visual Designer and Artist based in Bloomington, MN. I have over a decade of experience with brand identities, designing for print & digital, website design, event design, as well as marketing strategy & planning. Overall, I'm more of a generalist who specializes in brand strategy, graphic design, and web design.

In addition to being a freelance designer, I am also a lettering and illustration artist. A lot of my custom hand-drawn work appears in my client projects.

When I’m not designing or drawing, I enjoy climbing/bouldering, lifting, going to movies, dancing, and hanging out with family & friends.
